This was a very clean and well maintained park. It does not have a lot of amenities, however we were there to visit the Island and do things away from our site the majority of the time. The roads were constantly being maintained while we were there - filling in potholes, grading, etc. The maintenance people also replaced sign posts and kept up with park maintenance quickly and efficiently. They had good lighting and signage at the intersections making navigating the park very easy, even at night. The sites are level and spacious. They only have 3 or maybe 4 pull through sites which go quickly, however the back-in full hook-up site we had was very easy to get in and out of with our 44ft fifth wheel. The mosquitos were very bad when we were here and so we did not sit outside for very long at all. There were others who had campfires at night and there was a very nice cement fire ring, however, we were not wanting to contend with the mosquitos. The park is right on the lake and there is a great view of the bridge. Star Line ferry had two pickup points within the campground which made getting to and from the island very convenient. I would stay here again if visiting the island. We camped at Mackinaw City Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The Soo Locks are only about an hour each way and our kids really enjoyed the ships. The Lockview Restaurant was awesome! Their food tasted and appeared very fresh - my wife had the fried whitefish which was also done very well - light breading, very tender, and not overdone. The burgers our kids had were phenomenal - very well seasoned, did not appear to be pre-made/frozen. On the island, Joann's Fudge was the place to go. They have very good peanut brittle, candy, and of course fudge.

As others have said with 2 differences. 1. The 2015 price is $20. and 2. There's no clean up after someone leaves or worse, as someone has their dog poop all over and then leaves. Still a good value, but watch where you STEP ! ! ! We camped at Mackinaw City Campground in a Motorhome.

This park has two outhouses, no amenities, and no perks. However if you want a nice flat spot in a quiet area that's close to everything, then this is your park. The rate for water and electric is almost unbelievable in this day and age. Nice trees provided shade and the owner was mowing when we were there. It you want to pay a lot, go somewhere else. If you want a great place to relax and feel safe this is your park. We camped at Mackinaw City Campground in a Motorhome.

If you are looking to spend a night and not a fortune in a touristy area, this campground is an excellent choice. Good 30 amp solid electric with water and convenient dump station. There are both shade and open sites available. Self contained units would be best as there is no bath house. We stayed 6 nights while touring the area. We would stay here again when in the area. We camped at Mackinaw City Campground in a Motorhome.

This is an older CG with decent hookups, 30 amp electric and water. Both good for our stay. Nothing fancy here, but a solid value for $15 a night. Sites are hard packed grass pull thrus and fairly level. TV via batwing was strong, but with a limited channel list. Verizon cell and broadband both very good. Be careful pulling in, it is a long narrow drive so you want to avoid meeting on coming traffic. But traffic volume is low here. As long as you don't expect much, you will have a nice spot to visit the Mackinaw from. Which is a lot bigger than we expected given its population of under 1,000, so we ended up spending 6 nights. Plenty of food and drink choices in town, but on the high side. For a good alternative, try Clydes Place which has outstanding pizza and much better prices. Take a left out of the CG to US-31 and then 3 miles south to Carp Lake. It is just south of the blinking light on the left. We camped at Mackinaw City Campground in a Motorhome.

This 'no frills' campground is perfect for those not needing amenities (pool, playground, showers, etc.) It is big rig friendly and offers the basics - 30 amp electric, water, dump station, good AT&T and Verizon access, and good satellite reception. You can't beat the $15 price. Those of us who are self-contained need more reasonably priced parks like this. It's just a short distance to town and all the activities of Mackinaw City. I'm rating it a 9 because despite the lack of amenities it was adequate for our needs at a fair price. We stayed a week and would return again. We camped at Mackinaw City Campground in a Motorhome.

Well-kept and clean, probably because it isn't advertised and isn't near the tourist traps. Payment is honor system. Good grassy sites (about half of them have tree shade), good gravel roadways, some site butt up to the road and there is a bit of road noise (not much, since this isn't on the main tourist road). Each site has a picnic table and grill. Satellite reception is decent. Electrical is 30 amp. There's a dump station and the pit toilets are pretty clean. Very basic and inexpensive place, which is great if you're self-contained and don't want hordes of screaming children or amenities like pools...this is a great home base for exploring around Mackinaw City. From US-23 or from I-75 Exit 337, turn SOUTH on Nicolet Street/Mackinaw Highway; cross over I-75 and go south about a mile. The campground is on the left (east) side of Mackinac Highway at Paquet Road. We camped at Mackinaw City Campground in a Travel Trailer.
